When I was little I learned a folk song about a mule named Sal who helped build the Erie Canal. This was one of my favorite songs as a child and one that my sister and I still find ourselves singing on occasion as adults.
Because of this memory, I was very excited when Houseboating.org started partnering with Mid Lakes Navigation on the Erie Canal. Our canal boats allow you to experience the locks for yourself that are still in existence today. They also give you a fun, relaxing, alternate mode of transportation to visit the gorgeous border towns along the way.
With 3 houseboat sizes to choose from, we can accommodate your small group or family as you travel east to the Oswego and Cayuga-Seneca Canals or west to Buffalo and Niagara Falls and discover history, culture, new experiences and fun!
On January 23, 2011 Karl Zimmerman of the Los Angeles Times wrote a fantastic article detailing his 7 day journey along the Erie Canal. For shorter trips, we also offer 3 day weekend and 4 day half week trips.
